released December 4, 2016
Becky Langan’s first studio EP, “Parallel Paths”, was recorded in August 2016 at Blueprint Studios in Manchester, Great Britain. Recordings were engineered and mixed by Tim Thomas and were mastered by fellow percussive fingerstyle guitarist, Antoine Dufour. Each song was performed and composed solely by Becky Langan, on one guitar – her (very unfortunate) Taylor acoustic guitar. Artwork and design was by Marky Walsh.

Born in Rochdale, England (1992), Becky Langan is a percussive fingerstyle guitarist who employs a combination of extended techniques that explore the outermost reaches of the acoustic guitar.
Becky was a semi-finalist on Guitar Star 2016 (Series 2) which aired on Sky Arts - a TV show which scours the UK to discover a world class guitarist. Throughout this competition, she recorded at Abbey Road Studios with producer Tony Visconti and received mentor sessions from many iconic musicians, including; Tony Iommi, George Benson, Wilko Johnson, Jon Gomm and Preston Reed.
Becky has since grown an appreciative audience from all over the world, and to this day, has generated over 7000 Facebook followers and three million views on one video alone. Following her appearance at the NAMM show in LA, Becky’s ability was soon recognised by some of the most acclaimed brands. She is proud to endorse G7th Capos, ToneWood Amp, Jim Dunlop and Taylor Guitars, and is honoured to own her own signature guitar strings with Newtone strings. Becky is also the founder of Manchester Guitar Night.
